Skin to Bone

Skin to bone
peeling back
the unknown,
frail fragments
falling into black
dissolving into dust
for a life must
peel the burn away
shredding the decay
of life never living.

The Beast

Earth moves
under feet
tumbling; spiraling
to seek
the mystery
of the evening,
a secret
continuing to bleed 
but never spoken
only to be found
under the belly
of the beast;
guarded between
eyes and teeth
claws tearing flesh
only to forget
oh so easily
the girl,
creeping closer
in the dark
gutting the Beast
as it sleeps.

She fades
into the sigh
the past
is haunting
the future drowning
emotions running
all spinning
into a moment
of vertigo,
will he wait
for her
in this game
of Domino
pieces standing
waiting for her fall
to collapse
shattering her
in dreams
that undress
in the night
turning into
balls of light
as the sun rises
like a golden god,
emotions running
letting go
into a spiral vertigo,
will he wait
for her
in this game
of Domino
pieces standing
waiting for her fall
will he wait
for her
after the sorrow
into the dawn
of tomorrow
after the woe
of this game
of domino
will he wait

Ashes are Rising

Ashes are rising
burning bright in the fires
blazing in the night.

Heat of the Candle

Heat of the candle
warms the chill from my bones to
let me rest tonight.


You Must Go

I stand
at the center
of the earth
knowing that I must
be stuck in your curse
for I can't see
what has disappeared
or what will reappear
nor can my thoughts
of you become clear
but I can conclude
that I know
you must go.

The Other Side

Hand on the
cold glass
I can see
myself on
the other side
while I cry
on the other side
desperately needing
the other side
but the glass
does not bend
nor break
against my repeated
as I continue
to watch
myself on
the other side
always laughing,
always happy,
while I fall
on the other side
crying against the glass
that will never bend
nor break
but always
stand between me
tormenting the screams
as I beat
the glass
holding me
between two worlds
cold against
my plams
as I desperately
try to get
to the other side.

The picture is from a shared site.

We Can Not

We can not
give it up
no matter
how much
we falter
we can not
give it up
for it will
again breathe
as we will
again inhale.

#28daysofwriting day 28 poem 3

It Can Not Be

It can not be
what I want
it to be
nor will it
ever be free
to take form
on it's own
being able
to see
to again roam
into a being
of complete sanity.

Waiting for Warmth

I have again
found my moon
in the cold
waiting for
the warmth
that is you.

Under the Light

The light
is calling me
to the window
as I peek
into the night,
hand pressed
to the cold glass
feeling the need
to call
pulling me out,
out of sleep
out of dreams
to the glass
under the light
holding me there
under the moon
under the light,
the need
holds me. 

#28daysofwriting day 27


Lips soft
are red
with wine
as they continue
to drink
until they
no longer crave
the need
drinking until the
last sip
in the cup
stains the lips
while the tongue
licks it off.

Finally Here

Ah, it is finally here
the light peeking
in through my windows,
but I'm standing outside
with the cool air
breathing on my skin
with a touch
of wind in my hair, 
in the night
I stand
under the bright moon. 

#28dsysofwriting day 25

Start Over

Did it just
start over
the same night
over and over
with the same dreams
the same bed
the same blanket.
I cling to it now
sitting in bed
waiting for the dawn
for I can't have
the same night again.

Patiently Waiting

I have patiently
waited for the moon
to again rise
peeking into my windows
in the night
as I dream.
I can feel
the days getting shorter
watching the moon
transform each night
into different shapes
feeling it's power
getting stronger
calling me
in the cool night
to stand in the moonlight
as it rises full again.

#28daysofwriting day 24

Feeling the Rain

The rain 
dripping down
my brow
as I stand 
in the middle
palms out
catching puddles
to take in
every drip,
smiling to
every little splash
on my lips
with head held up
I feel the rain.

I Await the Rain

I see the
rising sun peeking
over the horizon
bathing me as I stare
into the light blinking
feeling its warmth,
while holding the light
I await the rain.
I see behind th sun
the dark clouds rolling
waiting for the storm
to finally come,
to bathe me
cleansing the dirt
until my sight
has become blurred,
I await the rain.

Bump, Bump, Bump

comes the distant sound
against the corners
of my skull,
which I ignore
until it rings
deep into my core
breaking me
waking me
until I can't take
it rings
again and again
with time in sand
so far away
but ringing so loud
into worlds apart
I still know it's
your heart.

Weep Not

The body
is laid
down to sleep
in the dirt
where it has decayed,
weep not
for the life no more
weep not
for the hole
it has tore,
for this body
has went to sleep
dying from this world
to rise, to reap
into a new life
that it has bore.

The Face

The face
is pure, clean
eyes sad, calm
brown pools
gazing back 
so very calm
content, relaxed
lips full, dry
do not move
pink ribbons
thirsty, satisfied
pure, content 
brown pools
gazing back
the face
relaxed, humming
lips full, sighing
pink ribbons
dripping, licking
mesmerized, full filled
the face
pure, calm
eyes brown, dark
in pools
gazing back
so very calm
content, relaxed.

I spin in
an infinity
with you blurring 
around me
with a touch
barely touching 
we spin,
feeling the desire
but unable to stop
we spin, 
knowing our touch
can never be
given up
for we spin in
an infinity
until one day 
we stop.

Black Canvas

A black canvas
is before me
lacking color
lacking life
sitting still
as I stare
at the candle light
flickering admits
the canvas 
flickering in circles 
against blackness
with a strength 
that this black canvas 
comes to life. 

#28daysofwriting day 18

There Is A Beginning

There is a beginning
and there is a ending
but I can never seem 
to find the beginning
I only seem to find the end.

Carry Me

Take me down
to the river stream 
wash the blood 
from off my skin
let all the wounds inflected mend
all the scars to heal,
wipe my body clean
until the water is red
wipe away everything
that has bled.
Lift me from the water
to dry my bare skin,
smile upon me
as you wrap me in your arms 
to carry me 
to always carry me
until the end. 

#28daysofwriting day 16

Cascading Leaves

Leaves cascade 
into red
coloring the ground 
all around
rising again
into the wind
grasping to the
bare trees
lost forever 
in the cold 
growing old
never to bear
only to turn brown
on the ground. 

#28daysofwriting day 15


as the water
submerges the body
lungs burning

as the waters
depart from the body
lungs filing 

as the waters 
dance around the body
lungs inhaling

bearing down
rolling down
my skin
feeling you within. 
Give me light
Give me grace
as I watch
the sun
roll down
behind the earth.
I still feel
the heat
on me
as I wipe
the sweat
off my body
as you walk 
toward me
with a touch
of fire
that I yearn 
to feel
even though
my skin
begins to peel
I yearn 
for your touch.
bearing down
as I watch you
needing your
touch of fire
to free me.

The Storm Embarks

Thunder rumbles
as the storm embarks
rain soaking
into skin
feeding from within
wind blowing
whispering into the storm 
lifting the earth 
unto the unborn. 

#28daysofwriting day 12

Drifting Away

I'm drifting away
into the night
riding a dream
that ripples
through waves
of reality
trying to crash
into the blinding light
only to be 
pulled back
into waves
of a never ending dream

Forgive Me

Forgive me
for I no longer 
see you
nor your shadow 
only the ashes
you left behind
into dust 
into sand 
to blow away forever.

Heart and Lungs

a breathing will
a beating want
together blending 
action and need
into life. 

#28daysofwriting day 9

Let Me Pretend

Let me
pretend to be here
holding you
in my arms.
Let me 
pretend that 
you are here
with me
whispering to me
pretending to
love me. 
I fall 
in the night
needing your embrace
let me sigh
let me cry
let the world die
for you are
never here
never holding
causing me
to pretend
for pretending
is the only way
that I can love you. 

#28daysofwriting day 8

Sit My Dear

Sit down my dear 
to feast upon
my heart
that you carved
from my chest
swallowing each bite
as my blood 
begins to boil
flowing from the 
wound you cast
staining your flesh
to become your poison.

Your Soul

You have 
again left
me alone
again to
cry for
your soul.
You seem 
to always 
walk away
to only return
back to me
for your soul
to be restored. 
But I 
can no longer
cry for you
Nor for your soul
the tears 
can no longer
bathe you
only burn you
into this 
darkness you 
left me in. 

Beating Heart

My beating heart
is alone in the dark
where it is bound
silenced and prisoned
held unable to breath
in a place it can not 
be found. 

#28daysofwriting day 6

Needing to Escape

The world
is on my shoulders
crashing in
thundering in its rumble
burying me
as it crumbles.

I need to escape
I need to escape

to bury the sorrows
needing a path
to follow
but I'm out of breath
suffocation is left.

need to
need to

lift up
but the rumble
will not let
crushing; set
completely blind
buried without light

needing to escape
needing to escape

before I suffocate!

Wine drips

into one.

I have again
fallen to your

torturing myself

that I want

through me
ripping away
my truth
only to leave
a dark void
that are your

Howl at the Moon

She steps
into the open
no longer
sheilded by
her trees
throwing her
head back
to howl
at the moon

Eyes Closed

Eyes closed
I dream
into a world
that only dreams
can create
and as my
bare feet run
through the cool greass
I lift my arms
into the wind
only to soar
into consciousness.

Euphoric Dream

Sleep is calling me
away into a dream, a
slow euphoric dream.

Falling Letters

Each letter falls
from my pen
blotching the paper
with lines
never to form

Needing words to be

Jumbling Words

Jumbling words
bounce back and forth
in my head
never being free
never being able to speak.

Breaking Words

Breaking into words
I fear of the jumble mess
of non-sense I make.

Dream of Serenity

The Woman Inside

I feel the rain
dripping in my soul
awakening the beauty
hidden inside
breaking through
the disguise
the power in

to be the true

Carrying the wind

Whispering winds sing
into the woods needing a
call to carry it.

#haiku  #30daysofhaiku

It Has Risen

It has risen
before my eyes
risen high
above the sky,

it whispers
it moans
it has risen.

I touch it
I want it
I feed from it,

It has risen
it takes control,
I blend
I sing
I rise
it dies.

Embracing the Wind

I feel the breeze in
the air, eyes closed I embrace
the wind in my hair.

#haiku #30daysofhaiku

In The Moonlight

I open my eyes
to the night
feeling the call
deep in the moonlight
the wind beckons me
I must follow.

I find myself
in the night
watching for you
in the moonlight
sending the wind
to call your name.

I stand alone
in the night
waiting for you
to bathe in the moonlight
with the wind
singing our name.

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Eyes open

Eyes are open to
see your face in the moonlight;
the wind calls your name.

Your Return

Unbearable reason
for your return
only to leave me
angry and burned.



She Sleeps

She sleeps
in the night
soundly, silently,
awaiting for a
moment in sleep
that dreams
become dreams,
to float away
in the wind
where she caresses
on her skin
the flowers of her bed,
where she lies
to never wake
until she is dead.

Flower, Flower

Flower, flower
upon the cheek
give me the answers
that I seek
in dreams
In wake
as I fumble
in the night
for sense to make.

Sweet Dreams

Sweet dreams
are falling
into place,
falling from
a source unknown
only to drown
in my ignorance
as I frantically
wake to consciousness.

Flight of Wings

Bleeding from every stumble
I pray to thee
on bended knee
to send me strength
on a flight of wings.

Heart to Heart

Heart to heart
there is a beat
running as one
in rhythm
in song
rising in heat
to one single beat
together we meet.

Drink of Life

She places wine
to her lips
drinking the essence
into blood
of life
that slowly drips
from her lips
into the dirt
blending with the earth
that binds
the blood and wine
into one
birthing serenity
into eternity.

Dark Clouds

Dark clouds
slowly disperse
revealing a soft glow
from a round
rimmed moon
bathing her
in moonlight
as she lies
in the dark water
floating down
the river
letting the moon
wrap around
her naked body
as she slowly
becomes numb
waiting for the warmth
on the other side.

After The Storm

After the storm
my body is broken
rising with a
bruised soul
as a war rages
on behind me
exploding in flames
blazing in the fires
of a world that
that is burning
sending its heat
to reach out to me
unable to touch me
screaming in anger
as I walk on
leaving it behind
to melt
with the destruction
of a world
I no longer know
but fought through
as it bruised me
breaking my body
but I'm still standing
after the storm
I'm still standing.

Poison To Wine

I'll take
your poison
and make wine
drinking it up
from a cup
of life
unable to
feel the death
in your hands.

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Consume Me

Consume me
as you take over
silently hovering
darkening my soul,
you bend me
you break me.

Confuse me
as I yearn for you
pathetically needing
something I can't understand
but finally tired
wishing you to leave.

Consume me
that is what I
wish I could,
as you refuse me
while I ignore you
wishing this to end.

Consume me
as you take over
silently destroying
as you watch me fall,
you bend me
you break me.

Fear me
as I take over
silently hovering
darkening your soul,
you bend me
you broke me.

Run, Run, Run

Run, run, run
needing to keep
faith alive,
but I toss it
needing to be
but I'm not so
can't face it
can't live it
can't be it.

Run, run, run
needing to keep
you here,
but I fear it
needing to feel
but I'm not so
to face you
to feel you
to have you.

The Air

The air
breathes slowly
gasping as I wake,
I inhale
to reach for you
in the night.
The air
freezes in my lungs
as time slowly
comes to a stop,
I'm unable to breathe
as I face
the reality that
you are not here.
I close my eyes
to vision a dream
to hold onto,
for I again see him
standing by the tree
the leaves
crowning him.
He is whispering
as I reach,
and atlas
I fall
reality crashing in
as I fear hopelessness.

My Poison

Your smile
has become
my poison,
your touch
my curse
for I fear
my demise
in your presence.
I can no
longer sacrifice
my soul
to you
nor leave you
my beating heart,
for I must rise
I must breathe
to finally see
for I can not
be blind.

A Tomb of Ice

I'm freezing
numb to the wind
never noticing
the cold air
trickling up my legs
turning my skin
into ice
seizing me with
a fear in my core
that my soul
can not be saved,
only to be forever
frozen without warmth
afraid to move
afraid to take
one little step,
for fear that
my body
will shatter.

Beaten and Broken

I'm on the
ground again
wondering why I
continue to stand
screaming each time
in pain
as my bones
break back
into place so
I can stand
only to be broken
again and again
back on the ground
crying of what
I have become.

Too Many Wishes

Too many wishes
on too many nights
waiting for your
warm touch
to soften
my icy soul
yearning fi
something that
I can't give myself.
Every night I'm
still alone
all alone in the cold
wondering why
you come
at all.
I watch the door
hoping to hear
your step
hoping you knock
to over come
my fear.
I wonder on
too many nights
where you
actually are
wondering if I'm
even a thoughts
of you are
helping me to
finally breathe
causing total fear
that you will
again walk away
but this time
I fear I will
not care
as I constantly wait
each night
for your warmth
to soften
my icy soul.

Debating Thoughts

Angry thoughts
torment me
controlling my very being
tearing me apart
ripping into
until I am
two separate beings
unsure of what
I think or know
bouncing from being
to being
struggling with my thoughts
debating on which
side should win
fearing that the
anger will win.

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I Have

I have been
looking everywhere
for something
that is right
in front of me
never realizing,
what you were
or what you
could be.
I have passed
the days wondering
why you are still here
in my crazy world,
constantly wondering
why you came back
never tearing down
my walls
but reaching through
my covered veil.
I have wasted
the days away
fighting with you
to keep you
from crossing the veil,
picking fights
that even I do not
know the reason to,
while being angry with you
without any reason
only terrified
of the emotions
you arise in me
that could lead
to happiness.
I have wondered
many days
if this is something
that I really
feel that I need
to be saved from,
so I can be alone
always alone
weeping for something
that I don't have
deluding myself that
this is happiness.
I have pushed
you away many days
terrified of you
stepping past my veil
revealing me
to be vulnerable
to you
craving your touch,
again wondering
why you are still here
and if I still have you.

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Did You Think

Did you think
that it would be easy
to tear me
to rip me
breaking me
to beg for your mercy.
Did you think
that you could crush me
slowly destroy me
without consequence
believing that you
had control by
by squeezing me until
I fell to your lead
while deluding yourself
that I was your puppet
on strings
that you could
pull anytime.
Did you think
that these memories
would linger with me
forever haunting my
every waking moment
for eternity
until I was hollow inside.
Did you honestly think
that I would
never fight back
or stand each time
you would strike
again and again
until my soul heals
and you are destroyed.

to dry
are numb
to die
in dirt.


Sunday, January 13, 2013


I've found shelter
under my covers
laying in the dark
finding comfort
in your pillow
which I hold
here in the dark.
Tears can
no longer form
on this night
and maybe it
will be better
with the light on
but I refuse to move
as I cuddle
to your pillow
under the covers
eyes closing for sleep
wishing you were here
as I pray
for them not
to haunt me
in the night.

The Wind

I can hear
the wind outside
blowing through
the trees
longing to be
with me
and I with it.

I long to be
out in the night
feeling it on
my skin
tingling every nerve
rumpling through
my hair.

I long to watch
it gathering leaves
in its pass
whispering to me
as it wraps
around me
feeding me with thoughts.

I can only
imagine it
through my window
as a sickness
consumes me inside
taking me away
from my world I love
leaving me wounded
struggling to heal.

I press my hand
to the cool glass
seeking the cold
as a relief
through the pain
listening to the wind
my only friend.

I See You

I can feel
a darkness
around me
trying to consume
what is me
engulfing me
but I see you,
through the darkness
I see you.

I stumble
I cry
I even fall
trying to avoid it
feeling it tighten
capturing me
but I see you,
through the darkness
I see you.

I submerge
I hide
I close my eyes
to see past my fear
of never holding
or feeling freedom
but I see you,
through the darkness
I see you.

I laugh
I smile
no longer feeling
a darkness consuming
seeing that there can
be a light in my world
because I see you,
through the darkness
I see you.

Friday, January 11, 2013


I arise
looking below
at a girl crying
screaming with
an anger
she can not control.
I watch her
as she moves
as she destroys
wondering what
and who
she is
for her soul
is dying.
How can I
tell her to
subside her anger
to live
and not hate
how can I
stop her pain.
I slowly
approach the girl
hand stretched out
to help her
but freeze as
she looks up
at me
as I look
at myself.

A Dancing Light

In the calm
of the night
I see a little light
bouncing through
the darken trees
tumbling, tumbling
into the night
beckoning for me
to follow
into the trees
the wind brushing
past me
pushing me forward
into the clearing
with burning fires
their shadows
flickering across
the trees
as they bend
swaying in the wind
back and forth
moving with the beat
the beat
of my dancing feet
in circles
in circles
around the fire
blazing up into
the night sky
revealing a round moon
behind the clouds
glowing down
into my open hands
palms up
head back
I howl.

Rising Sun

Awake to
the rising sun
rise to the song
of time
to bathe in the
waters of light
until the body
hurts no more.
fall sleep
to the moon's
deep glow
dream of the
days ago
and in the night
we will fear
no more
awaiting the new day
to soar.

A Candle Light

A candle light
dances around a room
flickering through
the shadows
as she slowly stands
glowing in the light.
The night descends
as she steps out
into the darkness
catching the moon
rising above
towering over her
with its light.
She lays down
in the dirt
closing her eyes
from the past
behind her
embracing the
soft wind rippling
through her hair
she sleeps.

Life Within

Rain slowly drips
on green leaves
soaking red lips
in a sip
of earth and wine
from a cup
that is thine
but slowly to be mine
in mortal kiss
under the dark sky
where the rain drips
from lip to lip
shedding a life within
into the sea
circling in sin
with the wind
into eternity.
